steps to double stencil

Use stencil as a mask

  1. Secure detailed stencil over cardstock.
  2. Add stencil with larger open spaces over first stencil and secure.
  3. Ink through both stencils to apply smaller detail only where the stencil with larger spaces allows.

Use stencil to add select detail

  1. Secure the open stencil to cardstock.
  2. Ink through the stencil in desired color.
  3. Secure second, more detailed stencil over the first.
  4. Ink through both stencils to add pattern/detail to select, or entire image as desired.

**Note: Using dye inks will blend the colors, so be aware of color theory to create pleasing color combos.
